With increasing number of road accidents, there arises a demand for the measures and techniques that would help in reducing the occurrence and fatalities of such accidents. The term Traffic Calming is relatively new to India and presents itself as a promising strategy to curb the increasing number of road accidents. The present study is about the various measures that can be adopted to attain the objective of fewer road mishaps. For this, a Stakeholder Survey was conducted on Mahal Road, Jagatpura, Jaipur to understand the issues related to the increase in traffic volume over the past few years. Results show that the increase in traffic volume on Mahal Road is attributed to the infrastructural development in the region owing to commercialization of the area in the recent years. Moreover, Mahal Road lacks the availability of public transport and utilities like pedestrian facilities and cycle tracks. Finally, some conclusions are drawn from the survey results and recommendations made for improving the road users experience.
